Counterfeit $100 bills circulating in Hawkesbury, Ont., OPP warns

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in Hawkesbury is warning retailers to be on the lookout for counterfeit $100 bills that have been circulating in the community.

Police say an unknown man was seen using fake money at a local restaurant last Saturday.

The OPP adds that officers believe this same man might have attempted to make other purchases using the fake $100 bills — one at a bank on Tuesday and another at a pharmacy on Wednesday.

According to a CCTV camera, the suspect is described as having a black moustache and beard, and curly black hair.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Hawkesbury OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222- 8477 to remain anonymous.
